Founded by Plymouth University, Plymouth City Council and Plymouth Science Park, the Growth Acceleration and Investment Network (GAIN) is a regional partnership that also includes:

GAIN exists to accelerate growth and investment in high quality businesses and ideas to create wealth and jobs in the south west.

It builds on and adds value to the range of business services, assets and facilities that currently exist by joining them all up and making them focused and accessible. This has brought together a variety of infrastructure, research facilities and expertise in a network focused on growth-minded businesses and investors.

It provides companies with access to new business services and growth opportunities, finance and investment, and world-class knowledge and research facilities and equipment. It also offers businesses a route to become part of local and global partnerships, and gives them visibility and exposure to international markets.

It provides entrepreneurs with advice and support on turning ideas into commercial propositions, as well as technical facilities and know-how, incubation and start-up support and access to new networks and investors.
